studioplusthree is an award-winning architecture and design practice working across architecture, exhibition and installation design.

 

We creates spaces, environments and objects that celebrate the process of making them and the experience of engaging with them.

Working across these related disciplines, our work focuses on using the qualities of light and materials to produce work that is durable and memorable. The intellectual, emotional and tactile aspects of our work are key concerns of the studio, and we are interested in the roles of both craft and experimentation in helping to realise these qualities.

We approach every project in a spirit of collaboration and curiosity, aiming to create projects that are as individual as our clients.
